It is good to see that some students in the shattered, staggering, dhimmi UK are angry about this. At least a handful in Britain are not going quietly into the night.
“Bouattia is the NUS’s first black female Muslim president. She was born in Algeria and came to the UK at age seven.” Muslim Arabs from Algeria are black now? This highly dubious racial identification appears to be yet another bid for victimhood and an attempt to buttress the claim that opposition to jihad terror is “racism.”
“Oxford, Cambridge Threatening to Break Ties With National Student Union Over New President Accused of Antisemitism, Supporting ISIS,” by Lea Speyer, Algemeiner, April 22, 2016 (thanks to Inexion):
Top universities in Britain are threatening to break ties with the country’s National Union of Students (NUS) following its recent election of a new controversial president accused of making antisemitic, anti-Israel and terror-sympathizing comments, the UK’s Daily Mail reported.
Students at Cambridge and Oxford announced on Thursday that they would be holding referendums on whether to split from the NUS following the election of Malia Bouattia, the report said. In 2014, while speaking at a “pro-resistance” event celebrating “Gaza and the Palestinian revolution,” Bouattia asserted that it is “problematic” to consider that “Palestine will be free” only by means of “non-violent protest.” In 2011, while attending the University of Birmingham, she called the school “a Zionist outpost” with the “largest [Jewish Society] in the country.” Bouattia has also previously attacked what she called “Zionist-led media outlets,” the report said, and more recently, voted against a NUS motion condemning ISIS because it would be “blatant Islamophobia.”
Prior to her election, Bouattia’s candidacy caused an uproar across many universities in Britain. Fifty-seven Jewish student leaders penned an open letter to the would-be president, asking her to clarify her positions. In response, Bouattia claimed she was not an antisemite, rather an anti-Zionist. “I want to be clear that for me to take issue with Zionist politics, is not me taking issue with being Jewish,” she wrote….
Bouattia is the NUS’s first black female Muslim president. She was born in Algeria and came to the UK at age seven after “terrorists rained gunfire” on her school, Bouattia said in her election speech. Defending herself against any links with extremists groups, Bouattia stated: “I know too well the price of terrorism, the consequences of violence and oppression, I saw a country ripped apart by terror and was pushed into exile by its doing. I know too well the damage done by racism and persecution – I faced it every day.”
NUS represents 600 student organizations and more than 7 million student voices across the UK.
